The article discusses court cases against Sheldon Adelson filed by former partners who are claiming that he owes them some of the revenue from his casino concessions and subconcessions in Macau, China. Adelson, who owns 69% of the Las Vegas Sands, has hired lawyer Rusty Hardin to defend him from the allegations. In April 2008, a Las Vegas, Nevada jury will hear Richard Suen's claim that Adelson's company cheated him out of 2% of its Macau operation's net profit, plus a $5 million fee, in return for help in navigating the Chinese political hierarchy.
